Özet

Background. Surgical management of pulmonary hydatid cyst disease has been well established. However, there are still limited data on the role of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery in treatment of this disease. The aim of this study is to identify the advantages and disadvantages of minimally invasive surgery and compare the outcomes with patients undergoing thoracotomy in this parasitic disease.
